How to Make Weed & Grass Killer


Commercial weed and grass killers are not only expensive, but they can also leave toxic residue on your lawn and in your soil for years to come. Homemade herbicides are a great way to circumvent the expense and possible danger of commercial products. Simply spray a vinegar solution on grass and weeds during midday, and they will burn in a few hours. If any stubborn weeds sprout up again, simply re-spray them as needed.

Step 1

Pour 1 qt. of white vinegar into a large spray bottle.

Step 2

Add 4 oz. of lemon juice concentrate.

Step 3

Add 1 tsp. of non-antibacterial liquid soap.

Step 4

Shake the mixture well, then apply.

Things You'll Need

  • White or cider vinegar
  • Spray bottle
  • Lemon juice concentrate
  • Liquid soap


  • Organic Weed Killer Formula
